By the time I checked in today it had risen to 42, crushing former Black Flag-man Henry Rollins under its gently settling robot feet.

The last update from Phoenix as this post went up read:

Unlike the Mars rovers, Phoenix doesn’t yet have a LiveJournal page. Nature’s Eric Hand has all the Phoenix updates you might desire though.
